to discuss the fiscal cliff negotiations, from inside, the house democratic perspective, chris van hollen, ranking member of the house budget committee and someone who served on the super committee. we've not completely depressed you about what you face, you know what you face. you've been in talks that have reds during the campaign. i would argue there was nothing specific other than hints from either mitt romney or president obama during the campaign that would tell people exactly how they were going to deal with these cuts and what they were going to do and how to approach entitlements. you can argue they don't have a mandate to deal with this. how do you approach the fiscal cliff in. >> well, of course the fiscal cliff has two pieces. one the across the board meat ax sequester cuts which everybody agrees are a bad way to cut the deficit. and i do believe we'll find a way to buy down those cuts, find alternative ways to save money for a temporary period while we negotiate other things. now, on the tax part of the fiscal cliff, i would argue strongly that that was a major part of the ca
cliff. the talks. joining me now to discuss the congressional leaders meeting is chris van hollen, ranking democratic, ranking members of the house budget committee. thanks for waiting while we talked about all of this that is happening in washington. >> a lot going on, indeed. >> the real story. of course that is going to face every american is whether our taxes go up, whether huge spending cuts take place and whether this will precipitate potentially another recession. i do have the feeling from what -- do you have the feeling from what you've heard from the speaker there is a solution and he will be able to garner enough votes on the republican side of the caucus and you on the democrat to try to avert this? the house is where the action is. >> they had a constructive meeting at the white house. the president and the top four congressional leaders, republicans and democrats. there was a spirit of cooperation today. the challenge is ahead because while everyone is committed to working to avoid going over the fiscal cliff for the reasons you just mentioned, obviously the devil is

along? we'll ask senator olympia snowe, fed up with the gridlock, and congressman chris van hollen stuck in the middle of it. >>> the blame game begin. mitt romney closes down headquarters. republicans wringing hands over what went wrong. >> don't tell me the republican party doesn't have outreach, we do. but what are we supposed to do now? are we supposed to, in order to get the hispanic and/or latino vote, did that mean open boarders and embrace the illegals? if we're not getting the female vote do we become pro-choice? do we start passing out birth control pills? >> where does the party go from here? we'll talk to virginia governor bob macdonald. plus other ballot issues, big victories for same-sex marriage and the fight to legalize marijuana. and late night gets the last laugh now that the election's over. >> well, it's over. and as usual, the guy from kenya won. >> president obama did well with women beating romney by 11 binders. >> florida tonight remains too close to call. so where's the good news, you say? here it is. the election was decided without them. >> you don't listen to

. >> chris van hollen, a member of the supercommittee on deficit reduction. he knows a lot. good to see you in person. >> it's great to be here. >> we're all running on fumes and now, we have to get on those fumes and solve this problem because the market is right. it is a crisis and it has to be dealt with. what i don't understand is, a little change in the senate, but -- why is it going to happen now. >> first of all, a lot of the republicans in congress have been focused primarily, maybe we can move beyond that objective. the second is the structure of the situation. the cliff creates big risks, also, opportunities. because not resolving the fiscal cliff will create problems for the country. we need to focus on two things. we need to accelerate the recovery and we need to act now to come up with a balanced, long-term plan to reduce the deficit. >> obviously, those are the, how we do that is the big question. now, john boehner had something to say today about revenue. by revenue, everybody, we're talking about, well, that's the whole point. there's different things we could be talking abo

van hollen what the president's role would be on the fiscal cliff. >> that remains to be seen exactly who will be the negotiate or negotiators. the white house has to be engaged. the president will make clear as he did in his acceptance speech last night we need to compromise. i think the president will be directly involved. >> directly involved but not clear what his role would be. will the president take the lead? here's the thing. americans want answers soon. today i overheard a major democratic fundraiser and lobbyist ben barnes saying this to a high ranking member of leadership. i'll tell you we better be in a hurry. i don't think the american people has the patience. business doesn't have the patience. american express wrote in its latest quarterly report in the absence of legislative action there continues to be growing concerns about potential impact of fiscal cliff arising from scheduled federal spending cuts and tax increases set for the end of 2012. well they better hurry up because in nine days president obama is going to go turnovers asia with stops in thailand, myanmar a

at this point, guys. bill: we heard a little bit from chris van hollen. what is the latest reaction from democrats to republicans mike? melissa: democrats say if you don't like the president's plan, republicans where is your plan? where exactly are you going to generate more revenue. they're trying to draw the republicans out to put specifics out there in terms of what cuts they want to make to entitlements, feeling like that may hurt republican argument. bottom line, house democratic leader nancy pelosi says she thinks republicans will eventually see the light. melissa: why am i confident? because it is the right thing to do. the american people expect and deserve this to happen. it is only a decision. it is only a decision to make, tough choices. there are tough choices for us. this isn't easy. but it is necessary. and i have confidence that my republican colleagues will see the light. >> reporter: but republican leadership aides say we had seven weeks essentially for congress and the white house to work this deal out. they have burned three three of those weeks and so there is great c
the conversation. >> let's talk about that issue allen brought up. i had representative chris van hollen on here yesterday. what about slowly raising the age from the future. getting it into legislation now. people are living longer, the game has changed in terms of this dynamic and the numbers and framework are quite old. he said no way. i will not consider that. what about means testing? what about people who have enough money to not need these benefits? should democrats be open to those two ideas? >> i think they should. certainly raising the age and raising the amount of money past which you contribute to social security. they could raise that. those are good ideas. i don't agree with van hollen on that. >> if you curtail spending people will get less stuff. it will affect the beneficiaries. reform is a cut. let's not lie. these programs are unsustainable. better tell the truth now. >> you can't say the republicans care about deficit reduction if they are not look at ways to enhance revenue. that conversation is over. the republican leader was holding the line on that. >> they could have neg
